Although I do not own the HP Slate 500 as of this writing, I can say that I have had the opportunity to use the new HP device at the recent National Association of REALTORS convention, and on one other occasion. To me, the HP Slate is setting the standard for tablet computing. Compared to other tablets on the market, the HP Slate provides these added bonuses:
- Dual Cameras
- Windows 7 Operating Environment (run all your favorite Windows Programs, including Flash!)
- USB Ports
- And more…
In fact, here’s a list from the HP Web Site of exactly what the Slate offers:
As a real estate professional, you can use Windows Journal, which means you can sign contracts in the field, make notes on your MLS flyer’s, and yes, convert your handwriting to typed text. There are many other features you can use your HP Slate for when working with customers and clients, such as showing slide shows of properties for sale, running videos, using Microsoft Power Point and more!
Priced at only $799.00, the HP Slate is the perfect companion to your HP Elite Book (my personal favorite Tablet Computing Device). Now with the HP Slate you can be more productive, save time, and look professional to your customers and clients in the field. All I can do is hope that Santa will deliver one to me for Christmas. Yikes, there’s an eight week waiting time according to the HP Web site. I sure hope Santa made arrangements for me! 🙂
